Maths in Year 5
The maths national curriculum for year 5 aims to challenge children to build upon their previously learnt knowledge. They’ll dive deeper and learn how to complete calculations with increasingly larger numbers, memorise equivalences between metric units and common imperial units, distinguish between regular and irregular polygons and more.
While solving trickier maths problems, pupils will be challenged to improve their problem-solving skills, reasoning and fluency, while developing a mastery understanding of the topics.
